Royalton Antigua Resort & Spa

Antigua, Caribbean

The hotel

A private beach that plays up to all those Caribbean stereotypes (think cashmere sands, dazzling waters, and gentle trade winds) plays host to one of Antigua’s latest luxury retreats. Watched over by Fort Barrington, Royalton Antigua lives up to its name – letting you live like royalty with almost every treat included in their All-In Luxury® promise. You can sip handcrafted cocktails, surf the WiFi, snorkel and kayak in the bay, and even try out scuba diving with an introductory lesson – all without dipping into your holiday spending money. And you can dine without picking up the tab too, with more than a dozen restaurants and bars covering everything from beachside burgers to sumptuous steakhouse classics. Adding their own special twist, they also feature extra touches like their Sports Event Guarantee™ (so you can watch big sports events on TV) and weekly pool and beach parties.

This is my first time to Antigua and my first time staying at the Royalton. I was there with the huge travel group and I must say the staff was very accommodating and friendly! The food/alcohol options were great and the views from the pool and swim up bar were marvelous. Even the late night options upon our return from partying were great! Shoutout to my guy Rohan on the 6th floor!! There was a weird tapping/knocking in our room that went on even throughout the night and Rohan was able to get it fixed ASAP! Cheers to you friend! If you want friendly & attentive staff, good food, and great views from your balcony, I definitely recommend! Read less

Our stay at the Royalton was spectacular. The staff was great, food was delicious and the room was more than comfortable. Lovely pool area and a beautiful view. The hotel is new so I'm sure there are some things that can be improved but I would certainly come back to the resort again!

My stay at the Royalton was absolutely amazing. The view from my room... I could see the water. The beach was always clean with a lifeguard on duty. The swim-up room was to die for.

My stay at the Royalton was absolutely amazing. The view from my room... I could see the water. The beach was always clean with a lifeguard on duty. The swim-up room was to die for. The pools were warm and a great place to lounge day and night. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. Every time I walked past a Royalton staff member, I was greeted with a smile. The food was awesome, with my favorite being the french toast during the breakfast buffet. The young man at the french toast/pancake station takes his job VERY seriously and I can tell in the delicious taste. He saw me every day! My room was cleaned daily. Cleaned so well that you would think it was the first day I checked in, and the minibar was restocked faithfully. I often visited scores for a late night meal, as they were open until 2am and service never faltered. And all of the bars.... literally all of them... were amazing. Get the Mojito from Levi! You won't regret it. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and have every intention of definitely visiting again. Read less
